AUSTRALIA - EAST COAST TOUR

A fantastic trip covering a large range of habitats along Australia's beautiful East Coast. We ventured into Tropical Rain-Forest, dry 'Tablelands' and Mangrove Swamps in North Queensland. Temperate forest dominates the hinterland near Brisbane in Southern Queensland where a different suite of wildlife can be found.

New South Wales offers another contrasting set of landscapes supporting an equally diverse​ range of species. The Blue Mountains hold several rare and endangered endemic species encompassed in the most beautiful terraine. Sydney is not to be missed and offers a unique insight into how urban wildlife integrates with the hoards of human tourism especially around the harbour area.

We spent 3 weeks in early spring discovering all of the above and much more, our list of 312 species of birds, 27 mammals and a huge variety of insects and wildflowers is a testament to the terrific biodiversity of this isolated antipodean gem. The next tour will be October 2018, come and join us.
